Having used skis and hiking boots the years before, I am interested to try out some snowshoes this winter. As I have worked in the past a couple of months in a mountain hut in the Swiss Alps, I frequently had to walk up the mountain for 2 hours to reach my workplace. With snowshoes on my feet it should be possible to reach any spot with ease.

Winter is slowly moving into Finland and we have to see if our gear is still working. This year we will try some snowshoeing in Russia, Finland and maybe in the Alps. Konstantin is still working on his next horror book review which should be ready anytime soon. We might also see an article about Konstantin’s new GoPro Hero3+ at some point in the future.
Written by a husband-and-wife team of authors, this book was published by Appalachian Mountain Club in 2009. On its almost 200 pages it covers a variety of topics, all of which are approached with the peculiarities of winter hiking and camping in mind. Thus, when discussing such a common topic as where to go, the authors draw your attention to various changes in the terrain, the shorter duration of the daytime and possible difficulties you may face when trying to reach the trailhead.
The Hiking Blog exists since 2010 and it is a hobby project of mine . The blog reflects my outdoor passion and for me it is a great way to share my hobby with people who are out in nature like me.

This week Patrick did some first tests with his new camera Sony A7r and jumped into the Bothnian Sea which had only 4 C (wind speed was 20m/s). Konstantin is still working on his horror book reviews which should be ready anytime soon. He is also working on a (yet) secret camera mount for his packraft.
